With only a dozen full time members of staff, our volunteers are vital to the future success of the venue. As part of The Civic’s volunteering scheme volunteers work alongside the staff teams and take on crucial roles in engaging with the public to ensure our programme is delivered to the highest standard.

There are lots of opportunities to volunteer at The Civic depending on what you are interested in and how much time you feel you have to give. We are always looking for help within the Gallery to support us in delivering the best possible experience for our visitors, equally there are lots of aspects of Marketing and administration that an extra pair of hands or two could really help with!

Why not become a Civic Citizen and become one of our highly valued advocates, helping to raise our profile in Barnsley? 

As a volunteer with us you will have the support of an experienced manager, the opportunity to see fantastic exhibitions and shows free of charge - sometimes even before the audience! And most importantly the chance to develop your own skills whilst making a vital contribution to the ongoing running and development of our organisation.

Volunteer for the Marketing team

A volunteer is a person who makes an unpaid commitment to support the work of The Civic. However, we also hope that by volunteering for the Marketing team, you will gain a creative outlet for your skills and abilities, and use the experience to develop your expertise and knowledge, and provide an opportunity for you to meet and work alongside colleagues with similar interests. 

Creative Volunteering Pledge

Voluntary Arts are asking the public to pledge the hours they give to arts, culture and creativity in their communities. Simply fill in the pledge form with the details of how you give your time or expertise to make your community a more creative place and specify how many hours you estimate that you will give over the next 12 months.

All the information gathered will be displayed as a map of cultural creativity and generosity. The hours and contribution will be tagged to your location but names and nicknames are used only at your discretion.
